Dora the Explorer

Show Summary

Dora the Explorer features the adventures of Dora, her monkey Boots, her Backpack and many other animated characters. In each episode, viewers help her to go an adventure in an animated world set inside a computer.

The third season of the program kicked off with "Dora's Star-Catching Adventure," introducing a new concept in which viewers interact with the show by searching for explorer-stars in each episode. A number of episodes are available in book form and on commercial video/DVD, including a couple direct-to-video releases. There are also a number of episodes and movies produced, but still unaired.

Dora the Exploreris currently in repeats on Nick Jr. and Noggin. Noggin airs the program every day including weekends at 3 and 4 P.M., but only shows first-season episodes. Nick Jr. shows episodes weekdays at 10 A.M., 11 A.M. and 1:30 P.M. and also occasionally organizes special showings in a marathon format. All repeats tend to be in a random order and all times listed are eastern.

Theme Song:

  • Painful and mediocre

    2.0
    This show is worse than Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I'm not shitting you.

    This show is about a Spanish girl who goes on adventures in a forest with a monkey. OK, you can't be serious. She could've got beat up, raped, killed, or even kidnapped.



    Her parents do not give a f*** if her daughter travels in the forest by herself. Way to take care of your daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Marquez.



    What's annoying about this show is that they repeat the SAME songs over, and over, and over, AND OVER. Don't you think kids wanna hear something different instead of "Come on vamanos, everybody let's go"?



    The characters are also no-brainers. Every 5 seconds, they need YOUR help on something SO simple.

    Here's a example:

    Dora: Do you see the banana tree?

    Me: It's right behind you.

    Dora: *turns around* Where?

    Me: You gotta be kidding me...



    Also, here's another annoying thing. It's when they say "Swiper no swiping". After they say it for 3 times, Swiper just says "Aw man" and leaves. Okay, in real life that's not going to work. What were the creators smoking?



    The episodes are boring and not fun. The art is good after all, even though they can be bright. The characters are stupid, annoying, and awful, and the voice acting is bad.



    This show is NOT educational. If you're a parent, I would NOT recommend this TV show to your child.

    Above all, here's my grade: F-



    Now excuse me while I take my brain out of my head, because I keep humming the Backpack song.moreless
  • I can't believe I used to like this

    1.0
    I used to like this as a kid, but I don't now. Let me start off with the songs. The songs are ANNOYING and REPETITIVE. We don't care about Dora's map, or her backpack AT ALL. In addition, this kid needs eye surgery. She can't see a mountain that IS RIGHT BEHIND HER! Also, why is this 5 year old "exploring" things in the first place? Whatever happened to parental supervision?moreless

  • A girl who is Mexican takes adventures with a bull, an iguana, a chicken, a monkey, a squirrel, a map, and a backpack.

    Dora is educational for learning Spanish and she says, 'Where's the mountain?' The audience says, 'BEHIND YOU' for Dora continues her journey and goes to the mountain. For goodness sake, I'm not the only one who is rating this a 10. Spanish, you can't do, watch this.
  • Never liked this show.

    1.0
    I do not like Dora The Explorer simply because it is too babyish, and the episodes just repeat themselves. There are also filler parts, such as the map singing, "I'm the map," a bunch of times. OKAY! WE GET THAT YOU ARE THE FRIGGIN' MAP! NOW CAN WE PLEASE GET ON WITH IT!



    I honestly do not know why this show is popular around little kids because when I was a little kid, even I did not care for this show. I heard that it is getting cancelled in 2015. I am really not sad about that, but I do feel bad for the fans.



    Overall, I do not like Dora The Explorer and I do not know how it got to be a long runner. If you like it, then I respect your opinion. I just don't find this show entertaining or see how a little kid would have a great childhood by watching it.



    If you want to watch something entertaining, watch Dora Gets Grounded instead.
